Real Sociedad vs Valencia – La Liga: A heavy loss away at Levante ended Real Sociedad’s streak on this start of the La Liga for good.
The first loss had already came, when they hosted Real Madrid, but that match could have been seen as a match that was too hard for the side from San Sebastián.
However, that was not the case.
Real Sociedad is still showing good football but they ended up beaten by an opponent who is also on an excellent moment of form.
To make things worse, their schedule puts them on another pretty tough challenge when they host Valencia, this Sunday.
Valencia is still unbeaten on this La Liga, having 2 wins and 3 matches so far, which means they have the same points as their opponents.
With a completely revised team, built during the transfer window, full of new faces on the pitch and on the coaching staff, Valencia is already looking to be very strong on this start of the season.
By playing away at the Anoeta, the expectation of Marcelino’s men is to keep their good run of results going, a run that was reinforced with a mauling over Málaga (5-0), last Tuesday.
That’s another fact that influence this match.
Valencia has played 2 days earlier than Real Sociedad, and that should reflect on how the teams will feel here.
Furthermore, on the mind of Real Sociedad’s players, there will also be the Europa League match they will have to play soon, with a trip to St. Petersburg to face Zenit.
Real Sociedad vs Valencia – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This is a particularly attractive scenario for Valencia, who will look into this match as an excellent opportunity to impose themselves against a direct opponent over the European spots in La Liga,
especially against an opponent who has been struggling lately and will have the pressure of playing at home.
